We alcoholics are, in all things, extremists. We either over-indulge or we must abstain entirely. Drinking is not the only field, however, where this characteristic is noticeable; it exists even in the way we practice our AA.

Many of us who thought nothing of paying $10 or even $20 a quart for liquor in Prohibition days, feel that we are more than generous when we drop a quarter in the basket on meeting nights.

Probably if we all loosened up a little more, our Committees would be able to do those things that we now criticize them for not doing.

A cheap brand of AA is no bargain.
